Do you have a kid (or two, or three…) who is a black and white thinker?
You know the type. You tell him he needs to share his toys with his friends, and the next thing you know, he’s giving away all of his stuff to them. But then when you tell him, “You can’t give away that game that Bubby gave you!” he looks at you with big, innocent eyes and says, “But you told me that I need to share!”
Yeah, kind of like Amelia Bedelia, only without the idioms.
If you’re nodding along with this and thinking, Yup, that’s my child, then you—and your child—will love When I Am an Abba.
This book is a great way to teach kids why they need to follow rules. Parents don’t tell their children to wear a coat when going outside in the cold, or that they must clean up their toys, for no reason, or simply because they like bossing their children around. Believe it or not, kids, there is a lot of seichel behind the rules your parents make for you!
Yet for all of those literal, black-and-white-thinking kind of kids, whose thought process goes, If it’s so important to wear a coat now, then I must need to wear a coat always, always, this book allows for the child’s common sense to kick in and save the situation—all in a light and fun way. Yes, it’s important to wear a coat when it’s zero degrees outside, but bundling up on a hot summer day? Not such a good idea…
Let your kids enjoy some good, old-fashioned fun and giggles with this delightful book, by popular children’s author Dishy Shiffman!
